One of the names that has consistently been mentioned alongside Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot is Miles Teller, who is rumored to be in the running for the Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic role. The rumor began back in August, and was quickly shot down by the director, but earlier this month when actors began testing for the film, Teller’s name came up once again. Now, Teller has confirmed that he has been in talks for the role, but another film might prevent his involvement.
“Uh, you know, I don’t know,” Teller told Fandango when asked about Fantastic Four. “If that happens, if everything works out, then I will be pretty pumped. But then I’ll also be working for… it’s like seven months out of your year. Which is not a bad problem.”
Teller confirmed he is attached to reprise his role from the upcoming film Divergent in its sequel, titled Insurgent, which he said will begin filming in April of 2014 – this would likely interfere with Fantastic Four should he be cast in the role.
Fantastic Four is set for release in theaters March 6, 2015.
